Well, it has happened again. A nice San Francisco made corkscrew has disappeared off of eBay.
The corkscrew, listed as “ANTIQUE ENGLISH IVORY HANDLE CORKSCREW MARKED 1800s!!!” And, in the listing mistakenly described as being marked “WILL & TUCK”, instead of WILL & FINCK suddenly vanished off the ubiquitous site today.
And, while no one has ‘fessed up as to striking a deal with the seller to end the listing and sell it off line, it is pretty clear that is what has happened.
I would love to post a photo of the corkscrew here, but as mentioned above it vanished. Gone without a trace!
Now, I have a sneaking suspicion as to who the scoundrel is that helped to facilitate with its disappearance…but for the moment, they shall remain nameless.
